NY Good Questions: How Should We Decorate This Room?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

We're moving into a great new apartment (renting) and have fallen in love with the Crate and Barrel Lounge Sofa in this lovely chestnut brown color.

We want to build our new living room around this piece.

We've just sold off all of our previous furniture, so we're starting from scratch!

We'd love to get some readers' ideas on what, besides the sofa, would work in this room both in terms of furniture pieces as well as colors...

A few things to consider:

- We love the sofa, it's 99% non-negotiable.

- We also love the idea of an IKEA PS cabinet or two, in either red or white, for some storage.

- There are a lot of nooks and crannies in this room and not a lot of uninterrupted wall space.

- The wall that can't be seen in either of the two photos is mirrored from about waste-height up.

- We are not too fond of the idea of painting.

- We love television. There. I said it. We'd like to be able to lounge comfortably on our sofa and watch the awesome flat panel screen that comes with the apartment rental.

Basically, we need your readers' help in coming up with the rest of the room!

Thanks! R&D
